I don't have a dog currently, but 4 of the 5 dogs my parents have had in my lifetime have been mutts and they've all been wonderful. Their exact ancestry is uncertain because they've all been rescue dogs, but we think it's been two lab/hound mixes, one lab/Saint Bernard, and one mystery combo that produced what looked and acted exactly like a white Golden Retriever. I think there may have been a Kuvasz involved, but they're not very common in our area, so who knows? The (probable) purebred was a lab.
I love em all, but the last dog I had was a rat terrier, very loveable, but mischivious. She shed a lot also. But pretty obedient. Unless in large crowd, I think she got over stimulated.
Honestly I had a dog when I was a teenager, that was just a mutt. He had chiuahua, in him but who knows what else, he looked more like a fox, with a bushy tail, short slender body and long snout. He was the best most loyal dog we ever had. He followed us kids everywhere. And defended us against everything. I miss that dog.
This is a no-brainer, there can only be one favorite dog for me and that is the yorkie. I have two and they are just over-the-top fun! These crazy little guys have turned me into a complete yorkie fanatic and now I find myself with a whole collection of yorkie stuff. Last year I even sent out yorkie Christmas cards (yes, I know Christmas is not PC, but ask me if I care) and my daughter has a yorkie backpack for school. She's as bad if not worse than I am.
Hi, Cons. You are welcome to come and TRY to train my (white) Golden Retriever, Dasher. He knows just how to reduce me to a raging, pleading heap of frustration before he will regally acknowledge my existence, let alone my "commands"!
I am with you Habee. Great Danes are the best. Once you have had a Dane for a pet, they become a family member and not just a pet. Their personality is so strong and they will take after their master. I would say the American Eskimo is my 2nd favorite. These dogs are gorgeous as mentioned earlier and they do get very attached to their owners and are very lovable dogs also and protective as the Great Dane is.
I am in the process of trying to persuade my partner that we really do need a dog in the house.I used to have two Doberman;a Min.Schnauzer but I am swaying towards a Beagle;my dog when I was small was a Beagle called...
I have had German Shepards, mixed breeds, and more recently a Siberian Husky and Shiba Inu. So far, I am most impressed with the Siberian Husky. She has the nice spitz look, is a nice medium size, and absolutely loves...
